    2018 Wall Hanging Swap July - Oct

    Welcome to our Wall Hanging Swap!

    You have 4 months to make a wall hanging of your choice.

    This is an anything goes swap. There is no theme.

    Size and Type of Wall Hanging:
    Smaller than a lap quilt but larger than a mug rug.
    Use any technique/ any style / any colors.
    Embellishments are a fun way to add to your wall hanging if you like

    Sign Up list

    There is no deadline.
    The Sign Up list is just to see who is interested in joining us.
    The only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list at the end
    of the 4 month swap.


    Ready to Mail list
    Ready to Mail list will be posted the middle of Oct 2018.
    If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to.
    Deadline - Midnight central time last day of Oct 2018


    I Need:
    Real name
    your address
    send international or not
    Allergy info
    Pet and smoking information
    Would like an email address
    Phone number would be appreciated


    As long as you have a wall hanging ready to mail you can join us any time up to midnight on the last day of Oct!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Addresses Sent Out:
    I will be sending addresses to each swapper at midnight of the last day of Oct!!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You will then send your wall hanging to the quilter who's address you get.
    You will receive from a different quilter than the one you send to.

    This is not a partner swap.

    Important!!

    Please send me a pm when you mail and when you receive!!
    Only those who send me a pm to let me know they are ready to mail will be on the mailing list.
    Anyone who is not done on time may enter theirs in the next swap.


    Please Post Pics of:

    Your fabrics
    Embellishments you are using
    Progress pictures
    Finished wall hanging - since noone knows who gets what -not even me-there is no surprise ruined by posting your pictures.

    Prewashing or not is up to you

    I hope you decide to join us and have a lot of fun!!

    Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board:http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    Thanks Ube.... This will be fun.

    Anna....I've been drawing out some options but haven't decided yet. I'm working on a quilt now using my hoarded collection of polka dots, so, since these are already out, I may use them for WH. Not sure yet, tho.

    Sounds promising. I really like polka dots too. Can't wait to see what you create.

    Just love seeing all the wall hangings flying thru the posts. So many talented quilters.

    I started mine. Scrappy large applique flowers with machine embroidery using special stitches on my machine and some hand sewing. My hands are reverting back to being cramped and sore again (at least my left one is) so I thought I would go large. Using my scrap basket. I figure if I start now, I will be done by shipping time. LOL

    Sign up list!!

    You guys are all the best!! I am so happy to have such wonderful ladies to hang out with!!

    This is our 19th Wall hanging swap! So the next swap will be a special swap!! I will have to think up some fun way to celebrate!

    This is as always just for fun to see who all is interested. It in no way obligates you to have a wall hanging ready to swap. It is only to see who is planning to play along.

    At or about the middle of the last month I will post a Ready to Mail list and that will be the one to be on. If you are not on the Ready to Mail list you will not get an address to send. and of course then you won't get one in return.

    So
    Sign up now -- but remember the Ready to Mail list is the Have to Do List!!

    I also want to welcome Teen to the swap!! We hope you have a great time with us!

    Thank you, Rhonda. So glad to be hanging with you'all. I've got my creativity running wild, right now but no fixed plan. So far, I've decided on polka dots and bright.....and, I may do something whimsical. I'll share more when I decide.

    Since I'm new to the swap, I'll share the first progress picture.....this is the background. By the way, I'm an appliquér.... You can probably guess there will be floral's...but, something more too...teehee... I am unable to share fabric picks because I have no idea what color, shape etc. of my vast polka dot collection I'll be using. It's a pick as I go project..

    Teen, I am watching real close! I have made two applique pieces for the swap so far and really enjoy the picking and choosing, from the fabric, pattern and finishing. This last one was the more complicated of the two and was fun from beginning to end.

    Ube...I love to applique for that very reason that being the fun in choosing colors and fabrics. I do turned edge and machine applique because I don't really enjoy handwork. I am having so much fun with this wall hanging.

    No ideas yet. It will be fall, officially, but not sure if a fall theme is what Will inspire me. There are so many beautiful colors for that time of year. Guess it could be winter too. Waiting for inspiration. Any input on what you all are thinking?

    Something will come up and inspire you, Linny. As you've read, I'm doing whimsical and it will likely hang in someone's craft room.

    I've been wanting to do this guy forever....I just love him and thought this swap is the perfect reason to make him. Still need to do the face detail and thinking about adding a butterfly. I have one embellishment I'll add when completed but I think he is so cute.... Anywhoo....hope, whoever receives him, will like him as much as me. He makes me smile so I'll be making him for my craft room, too.

    Teen, he is adorable and I would think anybody would love him, whoever receives him. Great work and amazing eye for colors and patterns.
